Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has addressed the rumours and speculation suggesting him considering dumping the PDP because he has been treated badly by the party.
Ekweremadu while assuring his supporters and constituents said he’s not leaving PDP, he’s still a card-carrying member of the opposition party.
The rumours assumed ever since he was overlooked by the PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, who left him and choose the former Anambra Governor, Peter Obi, as his running mate ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The Deputy Senator addressed the defection rumours via his Facebook page, he said:
“I am presently out of the country on a pre-scheduled engagement.
“In the past 24 hours, I have been inundated with calls from friends and political associates seeking clarification on the rumours of my departure from the PDP, which has dominated the media.
“Let it be known that my path in politics is in the hands of the Almighty God, who has indeed been very faithful and gracious to me. I’m very grateful to God for this”.
Ekweremadu added that he is still a member of the PDP.
“My vision in politics is a system that works for everybody, a social and political environment where everybody, every section, and every tribe not only counts but is also seen to count. As leaders, we must be mindful of this, for any system built on anything less will not endure.
“I am grateful to you – members of my family, my friends, political associates, and admirers across Nigeria and beyond – for your uncommon concern. I am indeed humbled by your kind words of solidarity and support.
“Please, rest assured that I am still in the PDP”.
